News: Loyal – Soo Depot Burns (Apr 1917)


Surnames: None

When the alarm for fire came Sunday Evening at 9:30, it was found that the So Depot was on fire. The fire had gained such headway before it was discovered that it was impossible to save anything from the inside, so all the books, furniture, together with a considerable amount of freight, was destroyed. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it is thought to have been caused by a short circuit, as it seemingly started on the inside of the building and the upper part was all ablaze when discovered. There had been no fire in the stove since Saturday. The hose was turned on to the box cars and warehouses, which kept them from catching fire. An empty box car is rigged up to serve as depot for present.
